Red Cliffs.

Ardrossan South Australia has some red clay type cliffs which run to the north and south sides of the local town jetty. It was out of bed early last weekend to capture some sunrise photographs of the cliffs. Unfortunately there was a fair bit of cloud cover blocking the sun during the start of the sunrise which has reduced some of the red effect on the cliff walls.

12 Apostles.

The 12 Apostles are constantly being pelted by the Southern Ocean waves daily and in many years to come there may no longer be the number of Apostles that stand today. The 12 Apostles form part of the Great Ocean Road in the western part of Victoria Australia.

Blue Lake.

Mount Gambier's Blue Lake is bright blue during the warmer period of each year as seen in this photo. The water is crystal clear to look at when up close when the lake is blue. During the off time of the year when it isn't blue, the lake appears to be a dark blue/green colour.

MacKenzie Falls.

MacKenzie Falls is part of the Grampians National Park in Victoria. While this photo was taken only this month, the reduced amount of water flowing over the Falls during summer will increase after the winter rains making for a more impressive photo.

Low Water.

Meningie is nestled on the banks of Lake Albert in the south east of South Australia. This photo was taken standing from the Lake Albert Caravan Park looking across the lake back towards the township of Meningie. Normally the bare ground would be covered with water if it were not for our current drought. The only benefit to the low water level would have to be the increased safety to children who now have a great swimming beach instead of walking down the bank into deep water.

London Bridge.

London Bridge is part of Victoria's Great Ocean Road area where thousands of tourist flock to view some of natures coastal scenery. The tourist strip in this part of Australia stretches from Warrnambool in the western part of the State to Geelong near Melbourne. The section known as London Bridge was once connected to the mainland until the piece collapsed leaving a small group of tourist stranded on the outer section. The group were eventually lifted back to the mainland via helicopter.
